The link isn't broken...the blog is gone. I think that says a lot about this whole situation, don't you?
The post is still available to be read though, since someone thoughtfully took a screenshot.
Possible first BW anime info - Dawn and Brock gone (?)
神出鬼没 - shin shutsu ki botsu
Zigzagoon that can pick up berries for him.
But Archaic is right, the source isn't any good at all. However I think we all known that Dawn will leave.
Odd that the blog has vanished...
Still, that may be a good thing! I for one want them to get rid of Ash.
Well the Pokemon Cast is rather becoming like the Sugababes, they keep replacing members, until eventually none of the original members are there any more, then you can't call it Pokemon anymore, it's something new and different, fans may like this, but for me, it's not Pokemon, it's another show, that is like Pokemon.
Bring back Misty.
And characters being around for 600+ episodes is horrible. I can understand keeping Ash and Team Rocket, but no other character should last that long.
The reason so many people dislike Brock now is because he's been there for 600+ episodes and has gone through almost no character development and has been handled poorly.
Well, Dawn was to be expected. I liked her well enough, but I preferred May over Dawn. Well, buh-bye, Dawn. Hopefully you'll like Johto or something.
However, Brock was bit of a shock. Unless they are going to replace him with another breeder/caretaker character, it's gonna be a loss. I was hoping to see Croagunk continue his Poison Jab routine in Isshu. However, only the first three episodes have been made, so there is still a chance for Brock to come back. I hope he does stay, I mean, he's much better than Misty or Tracey, since he at least gets things done, and is knowledgeable on many subjects. I hope he stays, but we'll see.
Yeah, I kinda figured they wouldn't use White. Even though she'd advertise for Black/White, I figured they'd create a brand new, rookie-like trainer. Even though this breaks the trend of characters representing a game (May for RSE and Dawn for DPPt). I wonder what this girl looks like, though. And I wonder what she'll be gunning for. May and Dawn both wanted to be Coordinators, so what will her dream be? Will she challenge Gyms, partake in Contests, or is B/W throwing something new in the mix?
To cap it off, another Paul-like trainer. Great. Paul was annoying enough as it was, now we got a second helping of it? Let's just hope this guy isn't as rude or ironic as Paul. (By ironic I mean Paul says that it's the trainer's fault for losing a battle, but he blames his Pokemon when he loses, so what he does contradicts what he says.) For the record, if we're getting a second Paul, let's just pray he's a little bit easier to swallow.
Overall, I have mixed feelings about this. Dawn leaving is so-so in my books. Kinda to be expected. Brock leaving is a shock, and should not be executed. A younger, non-White character being created; again, to be expected. And another Paul-like trainer, just swell. But I guess we'll know for sure when it happens. So, at the moment, I'm taking all this with a grain of salt. We'll just have to wait and see if all this comes into play.

I apply Felix's Law: "Smile, tomorrow could be worse."
I am most disappointed by the lack of White (or whatever her name will be). Her design was the best of all the trainers so far. What was wrong with her? Outfit not fanservicy enough?

As for the new girl, eh... I don't mind, as long as they're not doing Contests again. I don't like the new girl from the upcoming games anyway.
It was probably due to her age. She would have been hard to pass off as a 10 year old admittedly (but why the hell do we have to have 10 year old girls every time anyway) :,(I am most disappointed by the lack of White (or whatever her name will be).

Well, looks like I'm not gonna be able to wait to see the new characters. And if Brock does leave, I wonder who'll replace him...
"Nothing is ever certain."
Why why WHY was this news put up? I don't think the English translation of the blog made sense enough to completely reveal all info that is going on with the next series. This really shouldn't be taken that seriously.
I pretty much figured that Dawn would be gone, so there's no real shock there. A little surprised about Brock; I'm curious to know who will replace him. So long, Brock. It's been fun.
I am disappointed that the B/W female won't be joining the cast. But those are the breaks, I guess.
